    ...would I lose Ironfall Invasion afterwards since it's not on the eShop anymore?

    Nope, I just did this earlier today, everything stayed. But only if you use PC-based transfer!

    Hey guys, I need to swap out my MicroSD card on my New 3DS. What is this PC Based Transfer? Is it obvious when I go to do a System Transfer?

    Yes, it's one of 3 choices given in the middle of the transfer.
    • Wireless Transfer: The 3DS copies all of the files to the other system's [micro]SD card for you. This is really, really slow.
    • Low-Capacity microSD Card Transfer: All of the eShop games are deleted and their saves backed up, and are redownloaded on the new system. Don't pick this especially if you want any chance of keeping Ironfall: Invasion!
    • The best option: PC-Based Transfer: Use a PC to copy all of the contents to the new [micro]SD card. If all of the content is already on a microSD card, just insert it in the new system!

    Neat! I am not doing a System Transfer, just swapping cards out. Does that matter?

    Is all of your content currently on a microSD card? Then yes, you could.
